Today's problem.

The bouncy train occasionally makes my finger miss what I'm trying to select on my iPad, this coupled with patchy 3G makes my commute annoying.

One of my colleagues at work was bemoaning how much rent he and his missus pay per month (£1400, so there's a FWP problem right there).

He then went on to complain that they'd had their house (which they own outright) up for rental since December and hadn't got a tenant yet.

I asked the obvious question, 'Why don't you stop spending £1400 per month on rent and live in the house you already own?'

His answer? 'It's too small.' (This is a couple who have no children and two cats, and we're talking about a perfectly nice mid-terraced house.)

Mind you, last week he was upset that his missus had the nice car (a brand new VW EOS convertible) and he was driving around in 'an old jalopy'. (Said jalopy is a 3.0TDi Audi A4 Allroad.)

I looked up the antibiotic I'm on - booze doesn't interact with it. Yay, right?

Yeah, except my tonsils hurt so much I don't want to drink. Cock it.

The Co-Op didn't have any cheesy coleslaw in today, I had to get some sort of American Deli variant instead.

Obviously I could craft my own cheesy coleslaw by combining some grated cheddar with a normal coleslaw, but y'know, hassle.

Yesterday, when I went to pick up the tickets I'd booked for tonight's showing of Prometheus, I couldn't remember which card I'd used so I had two of the ticket sales girls checking my cards in order. I felt like such a ponce, handing over card after card (five in total.)

Turned out that it was the first one I'd given her but she tapped the number in wrong.

Forgot to put the pork belly into marinade this afternoon. Looks like pies and potato waffles for tea.

1) the new hard disks I bought for my Readynas are nice enough, however the Readynas has shit SATA drivers and it can't manage to spin them down properly, resulting in an annoying click every few minutes from the thing. However! Drobo have released new firmware that allows 3TB drive in their units, so I thought I would just swap a couple of disks over, a few hours of resyncing each and no problem. 12 hours later and the Drobo is still showing 72 hours left to go on the rebuild, which i'll have to do all over again once I try and move the next disk, then i'll need to resync the Readynas after all that, which'll take another day. Bloody things.


So, after 3 days of resyncing, the disk clicks in the Drobo too! Turns out it is a disk problem and Seagate have just released a new firmware which should fisk it.
Firmware installed, resyncing yet again, then I get to swap out another disc, upgrade the firmware on that... and then resync again...

Just got a cheese and onion sandwich meal deal at the kids play area and there was no onion on it. I had to manually take pieces of onion from my side salad and put them in the sandwich myself.

This is definitely a first world problem. Thankfully, a solution is available from Amazon
